Muchas gracias, Will. You lost me, but math is my weak point. What you came up with sounds about right.
As a funny aside…
Nancy, my Zulu maid, was here today and she had the TV on, which I don’t usually watch, because a lot of it’s in Zulu and because the shows are real bad. There was a game show on, and it was an algebra game show hosted by a hot black babe in a wheelchair. There were 2 teams of 2 high school kids each, one team black kids, one team white.
The babe would asked these algebra questions that I couldn’t understand, they’d cutaway to a real thin black guy in his early 30’s for further explanation and then cut to a commercial (very different commercials here, women scrubbing laundry by hand in tubs in the yard to sell detergent).
When they came back, a white guy in his early 40’s would explain the problem and solve it, but when he explained it, he would make things rhyme and include algebraic terms like “smileyface” and “frownyface” to describe parts of the equation.
Then they’d cut back to see which team got it right.
African TV in Kwazulu-Natal is pretty different from TV in the US!
